Summary: The inspiring story of the awakening of a group of severely challenged students through art Ten years ago, Tim Lefens was introduced to a group of severely challenged students living at the Matheny School in New Jersey, none of whom could walk, only one of whom could talk, and all lacking the use of their hands. As a painter facing the gradual loss of his own eyesight, Tim had come to fully appreciate the power of art, and he was determined to enable the students to paint despite the ...show moreir physical limitations. Lefens improvised a number of techniques for the students, including using the wheels of their chairs to paint and having able-bodied ''trackers'' take direction from them, guided by a laser beam strapped to the artists'' heads. These remarkable artists include Nat, the spirited seventeen- year-old with the beaded braids and brash wit; the brooding James; the wildly mischievous Chet; Eric, the group philosopher, whose talent seems to know no bounds; and the maverick Latino tracker Angel, bent on breaking every rule in the book. The artists come to express themselves through their painting in breathtaking style. Flying Colors is an immensely inspiring story about leaping over obstacles. We learn of the challenges the students faced as well as the extraordinary successes they achieved, culminating with an art show in New York and a CBS News documentary. Reminiscent of Awakenings by Oliver Sacks, Flying Colors reveals the passion and determination of one man, his studentartists, and their emergence together from a virtual silence to luminous expression. Tim Lefens is the founder of A.R.T. (Artistic Realization Technologies) and lives in Belle Mead, New Jersey. ...show less
